EQ Files

From time to time, I will share Electric Quilt files which may be downloaded and used as you see fit.  I do ask that you not make patterns to sell from any of my designs and I would appreciate a link back to Patchwork Times.  You are welcome to resize the blocks, change the borders . . do whatever you like to make a quilt that works for you.

You must have Electric Quilt to open the files.  Because the files hopefully will be here for a long time, I will indicate on each file which version of EQ is required to open the file.

When using EQ for my own purposes, I do not mind changing block sizes to get them to work to my advantage.  You may see a 13″ block or a 9 patch grid worked into a 10″ block.  When you see those sizes, it’s because I was trying to get a border to fit.  Borders are often my priority.  If you’re opposed to making cuts that are not your normal 1/4″ cuts, re-size the blocks but be aware that border issues may arise.

When a top is set on point, there likely will be a second layout with no actual blocks or fabrics shown.  This is simply to get the borders to sizes that I like to work with.

If you have trouble opening these files with FireFox or Chrome, please try using Internet Explorer.
